Rehearsal Aids for Sing, Montana!

THIS PAGE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS—JUST AS IT WAS DURING Spring 2021

As we add new songs, I’ll highlight them in yellow, like “Wholehearted” below.
Pretty soon, we’ll start building a special list for a 2021 Christmas Show. See the full list of rehearsal aids at the bottom.

Christmas 2021 List (work in progress)

FREEDOM CHOIR (Singing alone)

  1. It’s Christmas Time. FC (This is just a teaser. Should be all finished soon. Barbershop-ish.)
  2. In the Bleak Midwinter. (I had previously arranged this for piano, strings, and unison choir, but would like to rework the choir part to SATB.
  3. Riu Riu ChiuFC In Spanish. For Freedom Choir (and maybe Glee Club)
  4. Mandy FC (From White Christmas) Barbershop arrangement.
  5. Selections from Yuletide Favorites?

HOMESCHOOL GLEE CLUB

There’s no place like home for the holidays?

Winter Wonderland?

COMBINED WE MONTANA CHOIRS

  1. Calypso Christmas
  2. Infant Holy, Infant Lowly

MONTANA CHRISTMAS CHOIR

  1. O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
  2. Three Christmas Shanties
  3. Montana Christmas

Spring Concert 2022 List (work in progress)

  1. Because It’s Beautiful
  2. Carry On! (SAMPLER: Chorus Parts Only)
  3. Come Unto Me (Coming soon—Jazz/Classical–ish)
  4. Deep River (Women’s Chorus) Coming sometime.
  5. Desperado (with chorus and band)
  6. Hello, My Baby! We never got to hear this one after we moved most of the Sopranos to Alto for the Barbershop songs. I’m really hoping this one works well for us, as it’s composed by the same guy who wrote the Montana State Song. It would be nice to do a segment of his songs for some show.
  7. Isn’t It Romantic?
  8. It’s the Music That Brings Us Together
  9. Montana (SATB Advanced)
  10. This Is My Country
  11. Where Is Love? (Women’s Chorus)
  12. Wholehearted–Added 22 May 2021
  13. NOTE: This show definitely needs at least one Negro Spiritual. Here’s a cool one–do you like it?
  14. NOTE: It also needs at least one classical piece
  15. NOTE: It needs at least one Sea Shanty.
  16. NOTE: It could use a madrigal piece (in the style of Can’t Buy Me Love)
